Super excited and honored that we got featured on this list!! =D Link to the article.
Here's the excerpt from it:
While it seems to many to be a fairly new technology, growing plants hydroponically is actually an ancient system dating back to the hanging gardens of Babylonian and Aztec cultures. Used intermittently through the ages, the technique of growing plants in soil-less environments was perfected in the 1940’s. The last three quarters of a decade has brought a tremendous amount of technological growth to the science, advancing not only commercial hydroponic growing systems but also developing systems which are easy to use and manage by home growers or small-scale operations. Hydroponics, as well as so many other facets of agriculture, stands to benefit greatly from technologies being developed and introduced to the industry. These 10 companies are making huge strides with their hydroponic innovations.
One of the largest recurring costs for hydroponics growers is replacing growing media as it breaks down in the process. Some kinds also leave behind residue that needs to be continuously cleaned out, or promote fungus and bacteria growth (rockwool and cotton cubes are notorious offenders). The founder of VegBed set out to find a better solution that was clean, easy to use, and wouldn’t break the bank.
VegBed seedling foam is a perfect way to germinate plants, which then allows them to be easily transferred to a system of choice after germination. Their current focus is on their Grow Cube product, but the company is looking to integrate related growing products into their company in the future.
Hydroponic systems can either be liquid or aggregate. Liquid systems have no supporting medium for the plant roots, whereas aggregate systems have a solid medium for support. Aggregate hydroponic systems are further classified into closed aggregate hydroponic systems and open hydroponic systems; liquid hydroponic systems are classified into three types, namely, nutrient film technique, floating hydroponics, and aeroponics.
Future farms are the large-scale hydroponics production center in all over India and it has many branches in our country. Future farms have laid a strong foundation for hydroponics farming in Chennai. In Chennai, future farms have its large hydroponics farming center where they do hydroponics which can be seen by the people who are willing to do hydroponics.
